Virtual prayer event Oct. 7 seeks to unite Catholics across the country in a moment of prayer for America
Catholics across the country are invited to join in a virtual rosary event hosted by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) on Wednesday, Oct. 7, the Memorial of Our Lady of the Rosary. Archbishop José H. Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the USCCB, has called for this moment of prayer with the intention of uniting Catholics across the country during this time of unrest and uncertainty.
Archbishop Gomez has invited several bishops, representing the various geographical regions of the United States, to pray a part of the rosary which will be broadcast live on the USCCB’s YouTube channel and Facebook page on Oct. 7 at 3 p.m. ET (12 p.m. PT).

The faithful are encouraged to join in this prayerful moment of unity for our country, to seek healing and to ask Our Lady, on her feast, to pray for us and help lead us to Jesus, and encouraged to share where they are praying from, to post a photo of their rosary, and to leave a prayer intention for our country. We invite you to talk about and share the event on social media by tagging the USCCB and using #RosaryForAmerica/#RosarioporAmérica
